In 2019, The Perth Mint’s internationally renowned Australian Lunar Silver Coin Series II celebrates the Year of the Pig, the twelfth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar Pig include 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be honest, loyal, sincere and generous, with a calm temperament
Struck from 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, no more than 8,000 1/2oz coins will be released worldwide.
The reverse of each coin features a representation of a domesticated or pet pig, which are typically pink with black markings, along with four piglets, amid stylised foliage.
Each individual coin and three-coin set is housed in a stylish red and black presentation case and themed shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
